Chose this for a Saturday night dinner above the inn down the road based on tripadvisor reviews. Bit nervous as we started as solo diners but a couple of others filtered in. Frosty service but interesting menu and tasty, well-priced food.

We walked pasts this place and saw the specials board... $16.50 for Kransky, chips, salad and German beer. Great value for money. Tasty meal and nice to sit outside watching people walk by. Service wasn't much to rave about but was acceptable. Definitely worth the visit.

Not quite a cafe, not quite a restaurant, this bistro is on the main strip of lively Hahndorf. Good cheap means - quite tasty. The German Krasnoyarsk and chips and beer for $18 was great value.

I must start by saying the main meal itself was good. Not great, but probably above average. But when you go to a restaurant you can reasonably expect the whole experience to be above average. Otherwise eat at home; it's much cheaper. There were many little problems that left us feeling let down. I'll list them here: The "Specials" board... More

Small restaurant with a classy menu and very good wine list. Friendly service and food cooked to perfection. Salmon with prawns on a bed of rice with Thai laksa was heavenly!

Country charm with a hibt of elegance. Server was attentive but not overwhelming. Can make any entree a main size. We had the lamb shank and boneless pork ribs. Simply gorgeous! Thr lamb fell right off the bone and the pork ribs were so tender and tasty. Completely worth a visit!

Food Luke warm. Slow service. Had the only vego meal on the menu. gnocchi 5 pieces! and plate full of tasteless mushroom mush. I did say to waitress about my meal, 'I hope you enjoy your meal next time' You are kidding! This is not how you respond. Wouldn't touch the place with a barg pole. Tip. Respond to complaints...
